Change in population and society in Northeast China


Northeast China is regarded as a region that is highly compatible with Japan from a historical perspective. It was previously regarded as a significant producer of clothing and food products, but thanks to the opening of a high-speed rail line from Changchun to Jilin in 2010 (to be extended to Hunchun in 2012) and the operation of the Sakhalin-Khabarovsk-Vladivostok pipeline in September 2011, it has observed a continued improvement in infrastructure. Now the region can be seen to be emerging in economic importance in far-eastern Asia for both Russia and China.


In order to strengthen the competitiveness of the Chaoxianzu who live in Northeast China, as a people in the country, unique efforts are being made in terms of education in particular. At Yanbian University for example, there is much enthusiasm not only for Korean and Chinese but also for Japanese education. The rates of exchange studies and employment for its students in Japanese universities and companies is also high. For this reason, the region is characterized by the high educational level of the people first and foremost, and also for its pro-Japanese attitude. Information can be provided on the status of Northeast China (which is expected to develop in the near future), from the primary perspectives of ethnic education and changes in adaptation to society.
